I have been out of town for a couple of days and I am wading through emails and snail mail. It really does collect quickly, doesn't it? I had a great 2 days in Muskegon Michigan at the Patchers of the Lakeshore Quilt Guild. I did my little dog and pony show at the guild meeting (6 suitcases and a duffel full of quilts) and headed up a class on String Pieced LeMoyne Stars. I don't say "teach" because that is not respectful of people who actually DO teach. I just sort of "suggest" and try to keep conversation moving. Here is what we accomplished yesterday.Thanks to Darlene, Pat, Kathy, Kay, Sarah, Deb, and Cheryl. I had a great time!
There was a voicemail waiting when I got home. Bill's niece Karen and her husband Florent had twin girls today! Sophie and Julia. Aren't those lovely, sophisticated names for lovely sophisticated French/American baby girls? Can't wait to see the photos!
Hey, Polly is actually in town. We are within driving distance. We will actually get to spend part of the day together tomorrow doing all sorts of "Minick and Simpson" type things like hanging quilts and test driving my new vacuum cleaner. We aren't as sophisticated as Sophie and Julia, but we are a close second.
But, the big news today is Moda is having a contest! Go to www.moda.fabricmatcher.com and enter. You have the entire month of June to design one or many quilts using Minick and Simpson fabric. Info is here.....
You can double click on it to enlarge.
Good luck everyone - we can't wait to see the entries!
